Alexandru Tomescu concert, requiem for a patrimony house

Culture Minister Theodor Paleologu declared on Wednesday that he would organize on June 18 a concert given by Alexandru Tomescu on his Stradivarious violin, and a candle march, both dedicated to a patrimony house located at the junction of Visarion Street with Lascar Catargiu Blvd. from Bucharest, a building destroyed in the past few years. “We shall make a requiem for a house, for the famous house from Visarion street, which was destroyed, and we managed to attract in this action also Alexandru Tomescu,” the minister said on Wednesday, at the conference for the launching of the fourth edition of the “Street Delivery” project. According to the representatives of the Ministry of Culture, Religious Denominations and National Patrimony, the candles march starts at 21.30 h. in front of the National Theater from Bucharest, wherefrom the people will go, lit candles in their hands, until Visarion Street, where the concert is held. Paleologu also stressed that he will organize, together with the Ministry of Tourism and Bucharest City Hall, on June 23, 24 and 25, a workshop for the promotion of Bucharest and its surroundings. The minister said he is discontent with the absence of a unitary vision, which would turn Bucharest into a European capital worth this name. Actually, from the beginning of his mandate, Theodor Paleologu declared that one of his priorities is to protect the national patrimony, his policy going into this direction.
